The Block Claims Overnight TV Ratings — 11 Sept 2019


A look at the latest ratings results and what they mean for the networks – as well as a glimpse at how well your favourite shows are doing!

The Block Continues Its Reign Over Overnight TV Ratings for Nine

Since the show premiered its 15th season on Nine, The Block has consistently topped the charts on the free to air overnight ratings. It’s really no surprise that it’s recognised as Australia’s most successful reality program!

Although Sundays have been proven to be the biggest airtime days for The Block, Tuesdays aren’t so bad with the reality competition show hitting 968,000 from last Monday’s 978,000 and last Sunday’s whopping 1,145,000 viewership. Last night’s ratings gave The Block the lead ahead of a couple of news shows on Seven and Nine, not to mention Network 10’s Australian Survivor.

The Block is poised for another great run with high ratings that are placing them ahead of the ratings competition. Suffice it to say, this spells out another big win for Nine, especially following the success of The Voice Australia and Australian Ninja Warrior, which have previously aired and wrapped up new seasons this year.
